TBS Safeguarding

All adults working in or on behalf of TBS have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes:

*Providing a safe environment in which children can learn
*Identifying children who may be in need of extra help and taking appropriate action
*Understanding how to identify and protect children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm

Our staff induction and training covers the aspirations of the school with regard to Safeguarding as well as expectations of staff. TBS has robust systems in place which support Safeguarding including a Designated Safeguarding Person, a Safeguarding Committee, a Staff Code of Conduct and other policies.

We believe that Safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone in the TBS family. All staff, volunteers, parents and guardians should raise any concerns they have about poor or unsafe practice or worries about a child’s safety.

The Governing Body has the responsibility to ensure that TBS complies with Safeguarding duties under legislation from the UK, Nepal and the international bodies that accredit TBS or award membership on the basis of strong compliance (BSO OFSTED, FOBISIA & COBIS).  There is a dedicated Safeguarding Governor and Governors as a whole approve all policies produced by school.

TBS does everything in its power to prevent people who pose a risk of harm working with our children. This includes Safer Recruitment policies such as checking of potential employees as well as arrangements for visitors and volunteers. There are procedures in place to handle allegations of abuse against staff.

There are systems in place for children to communicate concerns and, although staff will not always agree to confidentiality, they will always act in the best interests of the child.
